We aim to publish Word-o-Mat Editions every 4 - 6 months. Each edition is a small box the size of a cigarette packet, which contains several tiny books (zines) featuring the work of different authors from around the world. Sometimes this will be one short story or essay and sometimes a collection of pieces like shorter poems or very short stories.

Each edition combines a variety of different work from new writers at different stages in their career so that every reader will find something they love.
Each edition is
available to buy from
and from
Word-o-Mat vendors at
Single editions or yearly subscriptions will be available for purchase online and will be received in the post.
